City approves trash rate hike

Michael Schneider

South Lake Tahoe residents will see their trash and recycling bill rise over the next two years.

On Tuesday the City Council approved a 6.13-percent increase to take effect on Jan. 1. A similar increase will be enacted one year later.

The rate increase is the first of its kind in about six years for South Tahoe Refuse.

The increase was recommended by the South Lake Tahoe Basin Waste Management Authority after discussing the issue at a meeting last month.

Douglas County, which is also served by South Tahoe Refuse, passed the rate increase last week. The issue is still to be heard before the El Dorado County Board of Supervisors.
